Should be a stressful championship Sunday!


That's very true, but it also goes to show how awesome of a player Calvin is. The Lions have been out of the playoff picture for 4ish weeks, and Calvin's still playing like every game is a must win. For a guy to catch 200+ yards when he's being doubled (sometimes off the line of scrimmage), and doesn't have any playoff hopes or isn't trying to win a massive salary is incredible

I heard Gruden say that too, and it kind of baffled me because the situation he was describing doesn't exactly fit the Lions season. They've 4th quarter leads over the Pacers and the Texans this season, and then haven't been able to hold on. They've only been blown out a few times, and in those games Johnson really hadn't been a factor. The Lions biggest problem this year (on offense anyway) were amassing a ton of yards and getting into scoring position but then screwing up mightily (mainly Stafford not quite being on point). If you look back, he's gained most of his yards prior to garbage time when the Lions were either in the game or building a lead they eventually lost.

Of course, even with the Lions struggles, anytime a player puts up the kind of numbers Johnson does (especially from a skill position most dependent on outside factors), it's incredible. He's the first player in history to have two back to back 1600 yard season (only Holt and Harrison have even done it multiple times). He's among five players in history to have 2 or more seasons of 100 yards receiving per game (only Lance Alworth has more at 3). All of this on top most likely being the first receiver to amass 2000 yards receiving.

Also, according to ESPN Stats & Information, only 588 yards of Johnson's came when the Lions were either trailing or ahead by 10+ points.

Ryan Clark misses a gift wrapped INT because he is always head hunting.

Remember when the Jaguars damn near beat the Texans a few weeks back?

Yeah, well they're up 10-0 n the Patriots right now. Doubt that holds up, though. Patriots are better than the Texans.

I'm not even sure who Josh Freeman was throwing that pass to. It was horribly underthrown.

And Janoris Jenkins is a rookie, correct? He's now got three pick-sixes this year.

I've got a cool story about Josh Freeman. My bestfriend's sister's boyfriend is an assistant coach on the Bucs who helps out with ST and the QBs and Freeman bought him a Burberry watch and gave him $2000 as a Christmas gift. Seems like a really cool guy.
